It is an unknown to many, which makes it quite appealing. Can pick them up quite cheap now so well worth a look.
Only minor niggles down to build quality... Watch out for leaking sunroof/door seals - a better summer car.
On the road
Good handling. Clutch can be quite heavy. Sporty feel.
Good traction and stability. Engine happiest accelerating over 3500rpm, a pleasant surprise...
Living with it
Never not started in any conditions...
Looks nice enough... but nobody seems quite sure about its pedigree.
Taller drivers beware. Thankfully front seats come with manual seat height adjustment and with lumbar support, well designed. Back seats lack height.
Security and Service
Alarm/immobiliser adequate, though mine has a tendancy to go off at the most inopportune moments.
Good servicing, if not a touch expensive - go off piste to local garage.
Problems and Ownership
Watch out smokers... There are no 'parallel water grooves' on the roof so when it rains it will come in the window on bends!
Did you buy the car new?
Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
